COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Ryan Miller had 26 saves in his first start of the season, lifting the Anaheim Ducks to a 2-1 win over the Columbus Blue Jackets on Friday night.

Jakob Silverberg and Cam Fowler scored for the Ducks, who have won four of their first five to start the season. The 39-year-old Miller was terrific after being slotted in for starter John Gibson on the second night of a back-to-back.

Pierre-Luc Dubois scored for Columbus, and Joonas Korpisalo had 22 saves.

After a scoreless first period, Silverberg got a short-handed goal when he put back a rebound to cap an odd-man rush that was set up by a deflection off an official's skate. Fowler scored two minutes later, taking a drop pass from Ondrej Kase and beating Korpisalo from the right circle.

Dubois made it a one-goal game late in the second when he tore down the left side and delivered a sharp-angle shot that went in off Miller's arm.

Columbus pulled the goalie with two minutes remaining, but managed only two shots with the man advantage.

NOTES: Columbus put F Josh Anderson on injured reserve and recalled Markus Hannikainen from Cleveland of the American Hockey League. ... Anaheim F Ryan Getzlaf played in his 989th game, becoming the Ducks' all-time games-played leader. The 34-year-old passed Corey Perry, who played 988 games in 14 seasons with Anaheim. ... Ducks D Brendan Guhle was out with a lower-body injury. ... Anaheim has killed 15 of 16 penalties this season, including three against Columbus. ... The Ducks have failed to score a goal in 10 power-play chances.

UP NEXT:

Ducks: At Boston on Monday.

Blue Jackets: At Carolina on Saturday night.
